The Indian-Canadian bestselling author of collections Milk and Honey and The Sun and Her Flowers is considered a new-generation “instapoet,” with a millenial-appealing and socially-built celebrity 3M+ followers. Her timely themes embracing taboo femininity, racism, mental health, and coming-of-age revelations couple with her feed of glamour selfies, bringing modern media to the classic art. Between a 2018 tour and spoken word performances across social media, Rupi influences through art and empowering determination.
